Al Aseel opening sixth restaurant inside Sporties

TRANSPORTING diners to the villages of Lebanon, much loved family restaurant Al Aseel is set to open its doors inside Bankstown Sports in mid December.

Featuring affordable food for all occasions, Al Aseel is renowned for its traditional, family-style feasting; diners will soon be able to experience its signature dishes, including kibbe, fattoush, hommos, shawarma and knafeh the way they were intended.
To mark the construction start, a ribbon cutting ceremony was held at Bankstown Sports last week, with attendees hearing from Club CEO Mark Condi, Club Chairman John Murray and Al Aseel Group’s Operations Manager, Ahmad Harb.
The cutting of the ribbon was conducted by Mr Murray and Al Aseel Group Managing Director Faysal El-Abd.
Recently awarded ‘Outstanding Restaurant of the Year’ and ‘Business of the Year’ in the Canterbury Bankstown Business Awards, Al Aseel has grown from a low-key restaurant in Greenacre, to a six-site-strong business also covering Alexandria, Penrith, Fairy Meadow, Castle Hill and now Bankstown.
Featuring a two-million dollar local investment injection, the restaurant opening will create 50 additional jobs, with hiring commencing for chefs, kitchen hands, waitresses and managers.
Mr Condi says he is excited for the positive impact the collaboration will have on the community.
“In a time where the industry has been so crippled by Covid-19, it is great to provide work for locals and see the excitement it is bringing,” he said.
“We are looking forward to welcoming Al Aseel and their many loyal patrons. And we’re excited about offering our members and guests another wonderful dining destination.”
Mr El-Abd added: “We love our community and are thrilled to be creating jobs and bringing our beloved cuisine to the heart of Bankstown!”
